Grad­u­at­ing Grade: 7

The Kids Post - - Post Valedictorian -

“I would en­cour­age fu­ture stu­dents to just have fun and en­joy it while you can be­cause time flies.”

How do you think Up­per Canada Col­lege (UCC) has pre­pared you for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion? They have taught me how to sus­tain my­self and work hard. I have de­vel­oped strong study habits through­out the course of the eight years I have been at UCC.

What’s your best mem­ory of the school? My best mem­ory at school was go­ing to Nor­val, our out­door school, in the win­ter of Grade 6. We played a nav­i­gat­ing game - find­ing ob­jects in hard-to-find spots - that lasted for over four hours. What ad­vice would you give to new stu­dents on how to get the most out of their time at UCC? I would say to just in­dulge in all the ac­tiv­i­ties and op­por­tu­ni­ties that are pro­vided at UCC. There re­ally is some­thing for every­one. What are your long-term ca­reer plans? I plan to be­come a pro­fes­sional hockey player - that would be a dream come true. But if I don't get that far, I would love to be­come an in­vestor and fol­low in my fa­ther's foot­steps. Did you have a teacher that in­spired you? My year 6 form ad­vi­sor, Mr. Cooper, in­spired me to al­ways be my best self.
